In other business at Tuesday night’s Town Council meeting, the Council voted to increase its 2013-14 budget allocation for three community partnerships. The council unanimously doubled its $16,000 facility use agreement with the Boys and Girls Club, to $32,000. But Council Member Dawn Rowe opposed allocating $20,000 to the Chamber of Commerce, which included $5,000 to help the Chamber put on the Grubstakes Day parade. And she also opposed allocating $25,000 to the Desert Regional Tourism Agency, which included $18,000 so DRTA can pay its utility bills. Rowe was also the lone vote who opposed taking the $48,000 these allocations require out of the Town’s transportation fund budget of $170,000. Prior to the meeting the Town Council and the Parks and Recreation Commission held a ribbon cutting for the new playground equipment behind the community center.
